#feelingrestful: A more RESTful WP-CLI

Earlier today, I gave a talk at A Day of REST about unlocking the potential of the WP REST API at the command line — by creating a more RESTful WP-CLI. Check out the project on Github, and stay tuned for the v0.1.0 release. Read on for my (loosely edited) annotated slides from the presentation.

#wcnyc: A Journey To The Center Of WP-CLI

#pdxwp: wp-cli is for WP devs on a deadline

As a part of tonight’s “It’s Tool Time: 4 Tools You Cannot Live Without” meetup, I presented on my beloved wp-cli. wp-cli is a command line interface for WordPress, and a tremendously powerful tool for WordPress developers on a deadline. So powerful, in fact, I wrote my slides as a command 15 minutes before my […]
